GERMAN CAVALRY
ARE REPULSED
Large Force of German Cavalry
Forced to Abandon Several
Pieces of Artillery.
~~~
Montreal, Sep*. 4.-The detective department announced this
morning that four wireless stations in this city have been dismantled by orders of Staff, Signalling Officer Alban Germain.
Two of them had been conducted
by Germans. The stations were
on Dauphineau Ave., Esplanade
Ave., and Notre Dame de Grace.
London, Sept. 5.—The Copenhagen correspondent of the Standard says: The Germans are*
mourning 100,000 dead.
London, Sept. 4.—The official
bureau has issued the following
statement today: According to
information received from a trust
worthy source seven German de-
stroyers and torpedo boats have
arrived at Kiel in a damaged con-
dition, and it is understood that j
others have been sunk in the vi- \
cinity of the Kiel Canal.
Rome, 3rd.—The Russian ' embassy here has received an official
report from Petrograd setting
forth that the Russian troops are
triumphantly marching on Lem-
berg, repulsing the Austrians all
along the line. Fighting has been j
on a gigantic scale, 800,00 Russians being engaged against 600. -
000 Austrians. If all indications
do not fail, continues the report
from the Russian capital, the
Russians will be definitely victor-
ious and as a result the roads to
Vienna and Berlin will*be open to
the Russian armies.
London, Sept, 4.—Noon sum-
mary:  The German right is at'
the reer of the retreating French
who are falling back through j
Creuil, Senlis and Crepy-en-Val-
ois.   This news would place the
advance of the German outposts;
within twenty miles of the limits
of Paris, their objective point. |
An unconfirmed despatch from!
Rouen says that the French ministry is considering the advisabi-
lity of surrendering Paris to the
German forces in case the latter |
pass the first line of fortifications
in order to avoid the destruction
of the city's historical buildings
by artillery.   Official information
regarding the respective positions
of the Allies and the Germans is,
however, lacking, as the censorship continues very close.
Mails reaching New York from
London today bring a report
originating in Liverpool that the
British have landed 80,000 Russian troops in France; This matter was not permitted to pass the
cable censorship.
Press reports of operations in
the east add little to what inform
ation has come from official
sources. In a general way they
refer to fighting earlier in the
week and confirm the Russian
claims of a great disaster to the
Austrian armies in Galicia and
German successes in East Russia.
Russians have occupied Lemburg
the capital and stronghold of:
Austrian Galicia.
Berlin advices say that a tourist |
arriving from Budapest declared
that the people there fear that:
the whole Austro - Hungarian
structure may break down follow
ing the Austrian defeat by the
Russians.
Australia has arranged to send
more infantry and light horse to
support the Allies. I
CORRESPONDENCE.
(To the Editor of THE ISLANDER)
Sir, - We, the undersigned, beg
to address our fellow-countrywomen in Cumberland and neighbourhood through the medium of
your columns.
It has been suggested that a
Patriotic Guild be formed for the
purpose of making useful garments for the soldiers and sailors
at the front, in order that we
may do our share in helping to
alleviate their sufferings, so willing and bravely endured on our
behalf.
For.this purpose, therefore, a
public meeting of the women of
the district is called by the representatives of the various churches
on Wednesday next, September
9th, at 3 p.m., in the Oddfellows
Hall, kindly lent for the occasion.
All British women are earnestly
requested to be present.

POSTPONED.
Bevan sports are postponed
until a future date on account of
the rush of shipping waiting for
coal. The sports committee are
giving a dance in the new Bevan
Hall on Monday, September 7th.
Daring will commence at 9 p.m.,
and will continue until 2 a.m.
Premier Asquith has opened a
crusade to stimulate recruiting.
At a meeting in the Guildhall in
London he called on every able-
bodied Briton of military age to
rally to the colors:
The German ambassador to the
United States, Count Von Berns-
torff, announced that he had posit1 ve information that two British
cruisers off New York harbor
were receiving supplies from a
vessel- flying the American flag.
London, Sept. 3.—Unconfirmed
despatches from France indicate
that on Thursday the Germans
were less than 25 miles from
Paris. All day yesterday the
head of the wedge which no\v
forms the German right wing was
furiously forcing its way to Paris,
battering the rear of the retreating French through Creuil, Senlis
and Crepy-en-Valois. The cannonading broke windows in Chan-
tally which is only 17 miles north
north of Paris. The Germans are
also at Soissons. Another despatch from Beauvais. 40 miles
northwest from Paris, says that
the Geimans entered Cleremont,
35 miles from Paris, at 7 o'clock
on Wednesday morning. At the
same time cavalry were operating
around Beauvais, 20 miles further
west.
Paris, Sept. 4. — It is officially
announced that the opposing
armies around Paris have not
come in contact.- They continue
their movements taking positions.
The statement adds: "The Germans have been checked at Verdun on the right bank of the
Meuze." The French are sue-i
cessful in Lorraine and the Vos-
ges. The situation has not as yet
changed.
London, Sept. 4.—A despatch;
to Reuters from Antwerp says it
is evident the attempt of the
Germans to envelop the left wing
of the Allies has been frustrated.
The German right wing has been
checked for the last two days
under pressure from the Allies'
left wing. The enemy has been
compelled to retire on St. Quen-
tin. A big force of German cavalry which was advancing on
Campeigne was vigorously repulsed and forced to abandon
several pieces of artillery.
WEST CUMBERLAND
VS. BEVAN.
A fine spirit of rivalry exists
between these two teams. For
some considerable time West
| Cumberland United outclassed
Bevan, then gradually Bevan
gained the ascendancy over their
i opponents, but on Saturday last
! there were changes in both teams
:which brought about a more equal
distribution of honors.
; Both teams lined up on Cumberland Recreation Grounds at 6
p.m.. West Cumberland United
choosing to play downhill. The
first twenty minutes was an easy
give and take, each team trying
to find the weak spots and so use
I it to the best possible advantage.
i West Cumberland being much the
I heavier team and playing down-
i hill kept pressing Bevan goal
j very closely, but the Bevan de-
| fence was difficult to break, their
I goalkeeper saving in fine style.
I At this time both teams were set
tling down and giving a fine exhibition of clean football.
There was a large crowd of
spectators present and the excitement was beginning to run
high, due to some of the hairbreadth misses of the West Cumberland team.
Bevan kept well in place, show
ing fine judgment in warding off
their opponents until the whistle
blew half time, with no score on
either side.
After a rest of a few minutes'
rest both teams faced each other
with determination set on every
face. Right from the blow of
: the whistle the game was fast
\ and furious, the ball bobbing now
I in front of the West Cumberland
! goal and in a few seconds carried
j to the other end of the field.
This continued for some time,
, until Bevan put the ball into the
net, when a great ovation went
up from the crowd of Bevan supporters which made one feel it
was a force to be reckoned with,
even amongst its supporters.
At the touch of the ball in mid-
i field the West Cumberlands went
j straight to Bevan goal and equalized in five minutes' time. Hats
flying in the air and the tremendous cheering at this juncture
recalled some of the great finals
in the old country. Both teams
were using every device and
every ounce of energy. Teams
and spectators were carried away
with excitement, and this continued until West Cumberland
put another ball in the net.
Bevan tried hard to equalize
! before the whistle blew but they
, failed, and so the game ended
amid great excitement in favor
'of West Cumberland by a score
'of 2 to 1.
The managers of both teams
are to be complimented on being
able to put such fine players in
the field. It was the best game
of football played in Cumberland
for years. The referee, Mr. Jos.
Walker, is to be congratulated
on the fair gentlemanly manner
in which he rcfereed the game.

A public meeting was held in
the Council Chambers, Cumberland, last night to further consider the wising "f a patriotic
fund for the purpost of supporting the wives and children of tho
men of this district who had been
ordered to the front.
D. K. McDonald, of Cumberland, occupied the chair. After
considerable discussion it was
decided to call thc fund "The.
Comox District Patriotic War
Fund."
There was a large number
present from outside points who
took a prominent part in the discussion. It was suggested that

It estimated to raise $1,000 per
month for the support of the
needy of this district.

our left the enemy seems to neglect Paris to pursue its turning
movement. It has reached Latere
Sous Jaurre, eleven miles from
Meux, passed through Rhiemes,
and descended on the west bank
of the river in Argonne. This
manoevure has not succeeded to
day more than on previous days.

there from Petrograd states the
Russians completely routed the
Austrians near Tomaszow, and
two generals are among the Austrian dead. Thc Austrians were

Gerhard Heintzman
Canada's Best Piano
Canada's beft piano is the Gerhard Heintzman. The sincerity in
every stage of manufacture marks
the Gerhard Heintzman instruments jjou buy today as marked
those that came from the hand of
the young master-builder in the
late sixties. Gerhard Heintsman,
still ambitious, oversees the construction of every piano that bears
his nania". In case architecture,
finish, style, the Gerhard Heintzman Piano has kept pace
with the best of the new.ideas; the action is the same superb
action, with mode-n refinements, that won first place for
this piano in the beginning. The tone is rich, sweet, pure
and lasting.
When you think of buying a piano, think of Gerhard
Heintzman and his life work. The Gerhard Heintzman Piano
is the pialio you will admire above all others. The price is
less than that asked for many inferior makes.
